An adult male forces a teenage girl to bend over and take a paddling on her buttocks, and nobody is calling the cops? No, because in this case it's at a Texas school and involves an administrator and a girl who cheated.
The mother in Springtown, Texas, complained -- as did another mother whose daughter spoke disrespectfully to the assistant principal, who then spanked her with a paddle -- saying that this was against school rules. Kids are only supposed to be hit by an authority figure of the same sex, they say. Men hit too hard, they say. Other than that, the paddling appears to have been OK with them.
At this point, the mothers are making even less sense than the school district. So if the man hits more gently, it's OK? If a woman hits harder, is that allowed? Why on earth do these people think it's OK for a person who is not a family member to lay a hand on their kids beyond a pat on the shoulder for encouragement?
In some states -- Florida, for example -- the schools don't even need parental permission.
It's hard to imagine how that's legally allowable. Parents have no choice but to send their children to school under compulsory education laws, and most of them cannot afford a private school. Which means that no matter what their beliefs, they have to consent to someone hitting their kids?
